Best immigration lawyer (2000)
With the immigration laws being somewhat draconian when it comes to noncitizens--documented or otherwise--who have committed crimes in their immediate or distant past, a good immigration lawyer had better have a working knowledge of criminal law as well. Fernando Dubove is such an attorney. Not only does he give a damn about his clients, but at a reasonable price, he tries to educate the rest of the Bar about this specialized area of the law. His speeches at legal seminars and his availability to criminal lawyers who are trying to sift through the maze of INS regulations make him a valued legal asset.
